Madhuri Believes Her Contemporaries Are Doing Great

Actress Madhuri Dixit, who is called the 'dhak dhak' girl, feels
that her contemporary actresses are going strong even today in
contrast to the perception that are fading. The popular belief is
that actors Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar,
Ajay Devgan- who are in their 40's are ruling Bollywood even today,
and heroines who starred opposite them in their heydays are either
faded away from arc lights or content with character roles but
Madhuri does not believe this. "It is great to see all actors up
there. They all have worked hard. Juhi Chawla, Kajol, Sridevi all
are doing wonderful work even today. One should not generalise that
actresses of our times are not around, it is not right," said
"All these ladies are doing a good work. They are going strong.
They are making their own space," she added. Even after her
marriage with US-based Dr Shriram Nene in 1999, Madhuri made a
come-back and continued to act in films. "I have always worked.
Even after getting married and going to the US, I did Devdas,
Lajja, Pukar, Hum Tumhare Hai Sanam, Aaja Nach Le, and currently
doing Jhalak Dikhla Jaa. I did a lot of work after marriage. So it
was not that I left and went. I have always been here,"she
Madhuri dismissed reports that she will be performing a special
song in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming magnum opus Ram Leela with
Ranveer Singh. "Nobody has approached me for the song. And there is
no talk about it. I don't know from where these stories are coming
from," the actress said.
Madhuri Dixit, whose item song ghagra with Ranbir Kapoor is
topping the charts of late, is one of the judges in the dance
reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and has two films Gulab Gang, and
Dedh Ishqiya in her hand.
